UPCOMING WEBINAR: Contractor Security with BYO-PC  Register Now
LOG IN

Today, many organizations have remote and hybrid work programs. While these programs offer significant benefits to the business — productivity, cost savings, flexibility, among others — and to their employees — improved morale, better user experience, etc. — they also come with significant security risks.

Addressing these security risks requires a wide range of capabilities, such as offering secure remote access and protecting corporate data on remote, personally-owned devices. Addressing these risks may result in an organization implementing a diverse and unmanageable array of security solutions.

Venn offers an alternative, with a single, integrated solution that solves these common challenges.

Read on to learn how Venn’s unique solution enables you to quickly implement remote work security without compromising on employees’ privacy or user experience.

BYO-PC workforce

BYOPC Workforce

BYOPC programs enable employees to use their preferred devices while reducing IT acquisition costs. However, BYOPC can introduce significant challenges around desktop support and security as companies struggle to secure a diverse array of personally-owned machines. Venn ensures the security of business data and applications on personal PCs by placing them in a secure, isolated enclave under the control of the corporate IT team.

Learn more about how Venn can help your company balance its BYOPC Workforce security needs with  employees’ privacy.

Virtual Desktop Alternative

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) has long been a method for supporting and securing a remote workforce. By giving remote workers remote access to virtualized desktops, companies could maintain control of their data and ensure that employees had access to the software and information they needed. However, VDI commonly suffers from performance issues, poor user experience, and other issues, making it a poor fit for the modern business.

Venn’s Virtual Desktop Alternative enables companies to overcome these issues by enabling the company to control and secure a portion of a remote worker’s device.

MDM for Laptops

Mobile device management (MDM) emerged as a solution to the business challenge of dual-use mobile phones. Employees using the same device for personal and business purposes run the risk that mobile apps could compromise business data. MDM provided companies with the ability to manage these devices and these risks.

With the rise of BYOD, companies are facing the same challenges today with dual-use PCs as they did in the past with mobile devices. Venn’s MDM for Laptops enables companies to manage and secure corporate data and applications installed on personally-owned devices.

Work and Personal Use on One Computer

With remote work and BYOD come the concern of dual-use devices. If employees use the same computer for personal and business purposes, then corporate data and applications may be at risk. For example, a user browsing to a risky website may accidentally install malware that has access to corporate data. Dual-use devices make sense for many organizations, but it is vital to protect the privacy and security of business data on these devices.

Venn enables secure work and personal use on one computer by placing business data in a secure enclave isolated from personal use of the device.

Securing Independent Contractors

Contractors provide companies with a flexible, cost-effective option for completing certain tasks. Instead of keeping roles in-house, companies can engage with trusted contractors on an as-needed basis.

 

However, contracting often requires sharing sensitive data and providing company-owned systems to freelancers introduces additional overhead and security concerns. 

 

With Venn, companies can secure independent contractors by isolating business data and processes in a secure enclave on the contractor’s computer that is under the company’s control.

Zero Trust for Remote Workers

In the ongoing debate between remote work and office return, a strategic security response, like zero trust, must adapt to ‘the new normal’ and potential future changes.

Traditional options like VDI and DaaS are no longer ideal due to their complexity, cost, and user dissatisfaction. They are also inefficient for browser-based and video applications. The missing piece is Venn’s secure BYO-PC solution that safeguards company apps and data without extensive PC control and management. Making Zero Trust for remote and hybrid workers a viable reality.”
